Sam Bros. 5 (LP / Arhoolie 1979)
Insane funky version of Chic's "Le Freak" by teen zydeco family group Listen. The rest of the LP unfortunately isn't in the same direction, blues tracks with Daddy "Good Rockin" Sam taking lead on the accordion and singing. Nevertheless this one outstanding track makes this without any doubts a must to pick up. Vinyl in near mint condition, the cover isn't in such good shape at VG with 2 inch split top right, small spilt top spine and edge wear. Priced accordingly.
